This article is kindly sponsored by BotzaTwo vegan bags for the price of one? Yes, please! That’s the kind of deal that might seem to good to be true – but new Hungarian vegan fashion brand Botza offers a range of high-end vegan bags that can be reversed for maximum versatility. The brand’s Indiegogo campaign launched this week, and they are proud to present four designs – the backpack, the bucket bag, the tote and the clutch – that together will make up a complete vegan accessory wardrobe.
Model Rachel Ford has been on our radar since we first saw her work with our partner brand Bead & Reel – but this sustainably minded model has a significant career lending her look to brands that respect animals, humans and the planet. From gracing the catwalk at the Fair Trade Fashion Show in Los Angeles to proudly proclaiming “In Plants We Trust” for vegan brand Beet x Beet, Rachel is an outspoken activist as well as a successful model – a rare, but much-needed combination.
Who can resist the soft, rich, well-rounded flavour of a well-made cappuccino, or the energising sharpness of a true Italian espresso? If you can, hats off to you – I know I certainly never could. Since I was old enough to drink coffee (opinions differ on what age that is; my Milan-born and raised husband tells tales of having been given a splash of coffee in his milk at kindergarten! ), I have been addicted to its sophisticated, grown-up flavour and kick of energy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
